Yelle - Je Veux Te Voir

Summer brings out the most poppy side of me, and this is my latest find. Julie Budet, also known as Yelle, is a Parisian princess of pop. My French is really not good enough to translate what she's saying here, but you really don't have to understand what she's saying to appreciate the catchy goodness. If you are so curious to google for a translation though, you'd find that this song is quite dirty. It's super gloomy out where I am today, but Yelle's upbeat album Pop-Up is just the pick-me-up I need, and I hope it does the same for you.

Meg & Dia - The Last Great Star in Hollywood

Okay the last month has been insane for me. School taking over my life would be an understatement. They just never stop trying to kill you in this program it seems. Anyway, moving on, hopefully I'll be a little bit more consistent now.

Meg & Dia recently released a new album, and it's not quite the same sound as before, it's a bit more pumped up and mainstream. I can't say I don't like it, but I'm more of a fan of their older stuff. Isn't that always the case though?

This is from Here, Here, and Here, called The Last Great Star in Hollywood. I was having a hard time picking a song so I listened through a few, and since I was having a fat day anyway, this seemed appropriate. Enjoy
